Houston’s been playing with a chip on their shoulders and it showed against Minnesota as the Astros took no prisoners. However, Lance McCullers Jr., while being one of the better pitchers in that rotation, struggled at times this season, with the Astros losing his final four starts this season, and while he also beat Chris Bassitt this season, Bassitt got his revenge as well and McCullers Jr. had an unsavoury 7.33 ERA on the road this season and while it’s not a true road environment, it’s not Minute Maid Park where McCullers Jr. had a 1.42 ERA. Bassitt had a 2.29 ERA this season, and went 3-0 with a 0.34 ERA in September. I think Oakland stifles the Astros to start the series behind Bassitt, so I’ll side with the A’s on the money line as my premium pick for this game.
